For example, the ML Library is preconfigured with 82 cartridge slots enabled. As your enterprise grows, so does your library. Each additional 9U Expansion Module is also license key-scalable in 46 slot increments that will eventually support up to slots in a 41U library configuration! Relational diagnostics maintains a history of events occurring in the library over time, and correlates them to provide failure prediction capabilities. The ML will select, gather and analyze logs and provide proactive notification to your designated administrator of potential issues before an issue actually occurs.
You can take advantage of the email notification feature to provide remote notification of events occurring in the backup environment. Finally, the integrated Data Path Verification Tool proactively checks the data path to help ensure connectivity before running your backup, helping to dramatically reduce instances of failed jobs. Setup, installation, maintenance, partitioning and troubleshooting are all handled through Wizards that guide you through each process step-by-step in plain English.
A full-featured, HTML-based remote management utility allows administrators to perform all library management functions from any remote location. The self-awareness and ease of management of the ML PowerVault Library help ensure that the safety of your backup execution is always worry-free.

It proactively sends e-mail notifi cations and proposes resolution paths through an integrated data path verifi cation tool, minimizing unplanned downtime. And the Fibre Channel configuration now offers path fail-over to the network for even higher availability. Easy-to-use wizards provide you with painless maintenance tools.
The straightforward administration wizard is driven through Microsoft Windows using library action requests. Similarly, the troubleshooting wizards offer resolution options for known issues ranging from cleaning and restoring drives to opening a service ticket. Scalabilty capacity and performance The PowerVault ML series uses capacity-on-demand scalability to increase usable capacity easily and non-disruptively.
Users simply select an initial configuration that provides additional tape slots, preinstalled and ready to be activated by a simple software key.
When all slots are activated, users can add expansion modules for more capacity. The ML series is designed to automate the retrieval, storage, and management of tape cartridges with exceptional modular scalability. You can also scale from There is a range of flexible configurations, scaling from one drive to a maximum of 18, and from 41 to cartridge slots.
You can even add or remove tape cartridges from the library while it is online, further enabling you to expand your library as your data grows. The planning, implementation, and maintenance of your IT infrastructure deserves nothing less.
Variability in execution can compromise user productivity, IT resources, and ultimately, your reputation. By utilizing our heritage of process-driven excellence, Dell Services can deliver a smarter way.
